Tap@Akkurat. Dark red with pinkish head. Dark red fruity aroma with that typical Cantillon barnyard fun. Quite fruity taste with some red berries, funky barnyard, tart grapes and dark grape finish.

Saeglopur (716) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 17, 2015
750 ml, bottled 22 October 2014, from a trade with Orson0368. Thanks a lot Paul!
Wine red to purple, hazy body, with a medium, creamy, fizzy, pink head, that dissipates to a small, stable ring.
Fresh, complex aroma of barnyard, mild cheese, sour grapes, sweet berries, green apples, wine, barrel notes, subtle malt sweetness.
Taste is sour, dry, with wine barrel notes, barnyard, sour grapes, sour berries, earth, sweet and sour apples, some sugar.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with an average, fizzy carbonation.
Finishes complex again, sour, dry, wooden, somehow salty, but also a bit sweet, fruity and wine like.

Very tasty. The nose is the highlight for me, fresh and really complex, where you get more and more aromas the longer you put your nose in. The taste is more common, sour and dry, really well balanced and with nice wine barrel notes. One of the best Lambics I’ve had so far.

GlasgowTAD (338) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - APR 4, 2015
Pours a transparent burgundy red with a pink head which soon recedes to a formation of bubbles. Aroma is very rustic - barnyard, basement aromas, earthy, horse blanket and grape skin. Taste is barnyard, funk, light sourness of lemons and tartness of green apples, slight red grape. Long and sour finish. Full body with light-medium carbonation.

Bottled October 2014. Red color with small pink head that goes down quickly. Funk and tartness, grapes, oak, refreshing. Not too sour, nice carbonation. Amazing! Wow!

Smalle (201) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 18, 2015
On tap at Moeder Lambic. Dark pink with a head that reduces quickly. Aroma: veyr sour and funky. Taste: very complex, a high degree of "verwovenheid" (sorry for the Dutch). Sour, fruity, very hard to describe. Finish: long and very sour, only just on the right side of the border of being too acidic. Excellent!

Maakun (1176) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2015
Rating 1000 at my fathers birthday. Hazy dark red with small light pink head. Funky, dead leaves, yoghurt, elderberrries and grapes, young red wine, oak tannins, berry pits. Medium tart, a hint of sweetness and light to medium bitter finish. Medium bodied with nice fresh feeling carbonation. Very nice.
